The Show Must Go On!

Powered by FundRazr

Unlike most other non-profit and charitable organizations, this is the first time we have been in a position where we’ve needed to ask for our community’s help & support. We are asking for it now. We need to raise $25K by the end of September to cover our costs and ensure that the show does go on!

Over the 20 years of dedication to delivering the most in-depth and cutting edge water education
and parts programs, we’ve never needed to ask for your help. We’re asking for it now.

Film submissions for the 2020 Water Docs Film Festival are now open - but we have a problem and need
your help to fix it! Ecologos, the charitable organization that brings you the Water Docs Film Festival,
Water Docs @ School Action Projects and Water Docs Where-You-Live Community Screenings
has run into a funding gap that, unless filled, will inhibit our ability to
organize and run the 2020 film festival.

NEW PERKS!

We have some new additions to our list of perks for our
crowdfunding campaign and we think you'll be pleased.

How would you like to go for out for dinner with Maude Barlow or the Water Brothers?
